Lori Poisson, LPN, CDP, Director of RightCare Solutions
In her role as Director of RightCare Solutions, Lori is responsible for successfully transitioning clients from facility-based care to home care, fostering a sense of independence for clients to age in place and providing assistance to clients and their families throughout the aging and disease processes. Through a holistic approach, Lori develops customized care solutions for patients to ensure they have the right combination of services to remain safe and healthy at home. She also works with patients’ families to help them understand their role in the caregiving process and to ensure they have the supportive resources they need during that process.
A 25-plus year veteran of home care, Lori began her career with a visiting nurse service as a Certified Nursing Assistant/Home Health Aide (CNA/HHA), caring for patients in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. She found her passion for home care when she was a caregiver for her own mother for more than a decade in her own home. This gave her a unique perspective on how successful one-on-one, home-based care can be for both individuals and their families. It also opened her eyes to the struggles families face while caring for loved ones at home. Lori pursued her nursing degree so that she could provide additional services to those who wished to age in place. She honed her skills in providing individualized care with a personal touch to improve patients’ quality of life and to help them maintain dignity as they age.
Lori received her nursing degree from Baypath in Charlton, MA, and is a Certified Dementia Practitioner through the National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners. She also holds certifications in Dementia Live and Compassionate Touch training.
A volunteer with The Huntington’s Disease Society of America, Lori lives in Spencer, Massachusetts with her son and German Shephard, Princess.
